Ashton Irwin x femme reader
Join the taglist!
When the members of 5 Seconds of Summer started getting back into the groove of live performances again, there was still a slight hesitancy on how to prepare altogether. Leading up to their live performance at a local music festival, they had been helped by a crew that was foreign to them but extremely qualified. This included Emerson, the drum tech.
Em was the drum tech that had captured Ashton’s attention the moment that they had arrived at their practice area. She introduced herself, shaking hands with each of the band members, sharing a small smile before heading over to the scattered drums. The kit still needed to be put together, so while the band representative spoke to the sound technicians, Emerson took her time admiring the cover on the Bass drum. It was unique and gave her an Earthy vibe. She liked it. It felt familiar to her.
Unknownst to her, Ashton had only been half listening to his band members, while keeping an eye on Emerson. Ashton couldn’t pinpoint what about her drew her to him, but he figured that it wasn’t a major concern. He watched as she admired the cover on the bass drum, and a soft smile graced his lips, glad that she liked it.
“-think, Ash?,” Michael asked him.
“Um, What? Sorry, I was thinking about something”, Ash muttered out.
Calum snorted at Ashton’s excuse, while looking at him knowingly.
Emerson, stood up from her crouched position and dusted off her hands. The kit had been fairly easy to assemble, now she just had to tune each drum and call Ashton over to try out the kit and to adjust it to his liking.
She sat on the stool and grabbed the drum stick, before repeatedly striking each one. She pulled on the chain hidden underneath her shirt, a small silver tool attached at the end. Then she started tightening the drum heads, allowing for more tension to tune the instrument correctly. The process was quick since Emerson had an ear for tuning drums, having been playing since her dad taught her at the age of 4. Feeling content that the drums were ready to be used, she quickly played them before putting the drum sticks back in their respective place and standing up to look for Ashton.
She didn’t have to look very far. Ashton was already staring at her, eyes wide at the fact that she had done the job of setting up his whole kit by herself and effectively. While he was used to always having at least two people helping in set up the kit, he couldn’t help but be impressed that Emerson had done it all by herself. He also found it endearing that she carried her drum key on a chain.
“Hey, Ashton? Um, are you free to try out the kit? I just need you to try it out so I can make the proper adjustments to it for you. Then, you should be good to go.”
“Oh, uh yeah. Yeah. Let’s go ahead and try this out”. Real Smooth, Ash.
Ash quickly grabbed his sticks and quickly started drumming, testing out the kit. Emerson watched him as he played and she mentally made some notes to adjust the height of the cymbals and to move the pedal to the high hats in order for Ash to not have to stretch too much to use it.
While he continued playing, Emerson quickly crouched near Ash, narrowly missing an elbow to the face, while she made the changes. She moved the pedal, adjusted the cymbals and watched as the tall man’s face showed wonder and how the small changes had made such a huge difference. He came to a stop, smiling up at Emerson.
The rest of the band members had watched from afar, their mouths agape at what they had just witnessed. Emerson had managed to go above and beyond in helping Ashton set up his kit. The guys all looked at each other and shook their heads in amusement, knowing that there was no doubt that their band member had a crush on the oblivious drum tech.
“I’m telling you, Mate. It was pretty impressive how quick she put that whole thing together by herself.”
While the band members had gone back to their dressing rooms to eat lunch before going to sound check, Ashton couldn’t stop talking about Emerson and how cool he thought she was.
“Why don’t you just ask her out, Ash?”
Ashton’s usually boisterous attitude faltered, a flitting look of vulnerability crossing his face.
“What if she doesn’t like me? Or she says no?”
Luke and Calum looked at each other in confusion.
“What do you mean? You’re a great person, Ash. You’re a happy, positive-thinking and funny person. You’re a catch, mate.”, Luke explained.
“Dude, why don’t you just bust a drum during the set and ask her then?”Michael joked.
Ashton rolled his eyes and groaned, still confused about how to ask Emerson out.
Before closing up the set with She Looks So Perfect, Luke and Michael bantered on stage, entertaining the crowd. The moment that the electric guitar rang out and Ash started drumming, he knew that it was now or never.
Emerson watched off from the left side of the stage, as she admired the way that the drummer was passionate about his music. She watched intently in case she was needed, she just hoped that she wouldn’t have to be. The band members had been having such a great and explosive set. They were true performers.
Calum was dancing around his side of the stage, really feeding off of the energy provided by the audience, when he heard the drums a bit too loudly in his in-ear monitors. Questioningly, he pulled an in-ear out and shot a look at Ash.
Ashton, catching Calum’s glance, sent him a sheepish look back along with an almost unnoticeable nod.
With one last bang from Ashton, the head of the snare drum burst. This caused Ashton to look over to the left, eyes seeking Emerson out. He continued to play with the other drums, as Emerson ran over with another drum head and immediately tugged out her drum key from underneath her shirt. She inspected the damage and new that it would have to take a completely new head. No matter how fast she changed the head on this, it might be too long. So she did the only thing that she could think of doing. She ran back to the area where she was standing and brought out a different snare drum. She quickly adjusted it back to the stand and watched as Ashton sent her a look of thanks but his eyes showed a slight disappointment.
After their performance, the crew quickly moved onto the stage to help clear off the instruments while the band members travelled back to their dressing room.
“I know, Cal. I missed my chance. I literally did all of that just so I could ask her, but I froze and she was too quick! I don’t even know where she got the new snare from!”
“Well, maybe you can take it back to her? That way you can finally ask her out”.
While Emerson ensured that each drum from Ashton’s kit was properly put away and safe for transport, she heard someone behind her clear their throat.
She straightened up and turned around only to see Ashton sheepishly standing there with the snare drum that she had lent him earlier in the show.
“Oh! Thanks for returning that! I completely forgot that you still had it. I went ahead and replaced the busted drum head on your snare. You might want to break it in a bit though, and should last you for the next six to twelve months. But of course you knew that, huh?” A suddenly shy Emerson looked away from Ashton as he let out a slight chuckle.
“I did know that, but thank you for the reminder. Also, thank you for still fixing the snare for me. I appreciate that. Here. Thank you so much for being a complete life saver with this other snare. I’m a bit embarrassed due to the fact that my drum head broke on stage in the middle of our set.”
“I mean, If you hadn’t suddenly started beating the heck out of the snare, I’m sure it would have been just fine”, Emerson teased.
Ashton’s eyes widened, “You noticed that?”
Emerson laughed at his expression. “Well I mean, yeah. That’s kind of the job. But of course it helped that the drummer was cute and definitely passionate”.
Ashton’s fallen face suddenly broke out into a smile, “Cute?”
Emerson blushed and nodded her head at the drummer.
“Hey, would you like to go get some dinner with me? Since you’re still on the job, I figured that we could go walking to all of the stalls and vendors”, Ash asked hopefully.
“I’d love that, Ash”.
Smiling, Ash extended his hand out to her and she took it.
“Before I forget, where did you get another snare from? Do you just have extra drums with you or what?”
Emerson let out a hearty laugh. “Believe it or not, I absolutely wrecked my last snare so I had to buy a new one. Thanks for breaking it in, Ash.”
Ashton couldn’t help but laugh as he dragged Emerson towards the nearest food vendor.
